Remember that time when there was a raging debate about whether Booster Gold, who had been missing from the DC Universe for months, was going to reappear in another character's comic set in the past?
I'm talking about All-Star Western #19.
Believe it or not, that issue was released 4 years ago today. Ah, it feels like only 3.
In the 4 years since then, Booster Gold has appeared in exactly 11 DCnU comics (4 All-Star Westerns, 3 Convergence tie-ins, 2 Bat-Mites, 1 Futures End, and 1 Flintstones, which may or may not be in continuity). That's less than one comic every 4 months.

Unless explicitly intended otherwise, most one-shot issues should probably be considered outside of continuity. That's sort of what "one-shot" implies.
Last week's poll question: Was Booster Gold/Flintstones in continuity? (55 votes)
I'm glad I asked this question. I'm surprised how few of you actually consider this to be in continuity. It's always good to know what the fans are thinking.
That said, I still see nothing to prevent the issue's story from taking place in modern DC continuity. Given that there's no indication in DC's July solicitations that we'll be seeing Booster Gold again any time before August (at the earliest), it looks like the publisher is in no hurry to prove this story wasn't in continuity. Therefore, I'm going to classify it as such here on Boosterrific.com.
(What is or is not in continuity is always in flux. For examples: Batman: Son of the Demon, Watchmen, and anything that DC published prior to Crisis on Infinite Earths. If you're a fan long enough, everything will come and go and come back again. Even Extreme Justice.)

Michael Boruff isn't the only Booster Gold cosplayer out this season. Check out this pose from New England's Super Megafest Comic Con two weeks ago:
That's BattleStardoe as Booster Gold and Everyone's Hero as The Darker Knight. (Photo is from Everyone's Hero post on Cosplay Amino.) What a good looking pair!
